Parisian Chic in NYC

“French girl” style is all about the je ne sais quoi attitude — effortless, comfortable, and endlessly chic, there’s a reason it’s imitated all over the world.

For brunch at Little Prince, a cute French restaurant in SoHo, I decided to wear a simple Parisian inspired outfit. There’s nothing better than a classic black and white combo with a pop of red. Everything I’m wearing is super old (except for the bag, which my friend and photographer Brittney was kind enough to lend me for this shoot), but when you invest in something that’s good quality, you know it’ll last a long time.

I especially love the ruffle detail along the zipper of the wool coat. You can’t see much of my shirt, but the polka dots are actually in a gradient and get smaller and smaller as you move down the shirt. Cool, right? My boots also have a little “flap” that you can fold up to create an over the knee look. Last but not least, berets are having a moment this season so I just had to pull mine out!

And now… food!! We ended up ordering the French onion soup burger and the French toast. While both were pretty good, I have to say they were a bit overpriced for the amount of food you get. Although, the burger did come with fries which were SO ADDICTING. Whatever ingredients they use for the sauce, I NEED TO KNOW THEIR SECRET.

Can you believe the rest of the week is going to be in the 50s and 60s? So crazy, especially after the blizzard last week. I’m excited to not have to wear a heavy coat everywhere, but it’ll be raining, which is a bummer. I can’t wait for nice weather so that I can explore more of NYC! In the meantime, you can find me daydreaming over my next adventure… the wanderlust is real, you guys.
